Trial Capacity Award Recipients 

More clinical trials and more participants mean more opportunities to find new treatments and a cure for ALS. We are proud to support established and emerging sites like these through our Trial Capacity Awards as they work to improve trial accessibility for people with ALS and the efficiency and pace at which this research is conducted.
